(Courier News Photo) Convention Highlights Auxiliary Agenda Anita Bryant Cooks Too! "I have something very rare: a success/id career, a succesful marriage, and I'm happy as a wife and a mother," Anita Bryant, who comes to Blytheville for a concert next Friday night, has said. The Oklahoma girl, .who began her career as a singer in Tulsa, moved on to a regular spot on Arthur Godfrey's morning radio show, and then to Don McNeill's Breakfast Club following her selection as runner-up to Miss America, has been called "one of Oklahoma's best-known exports." She has been voted "Number One Female Recording Artist," has sung before presidents and kings, appeared for seven consecutive years on Bob Hope's annual holiday tour for the Armed Forces, has performed at National and Southern Governors' Conferences, Democratic and Republican conventions, has appeared during halftime ceremonies at the Orange Bowl and Super Bowl, and in a wide range of television shows. Her awards and titles include being named to the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, chairwpman of Freedoms Roll Call at Freedoms Foundation in Valley Forge, the USO 25th anniversary Silver Medallion Award, and she is the youngest individual and only female entertainer to ever receive the " G u a r d s m a n A w a r d , " presented by the National Guard for the most outstanding service by an entertainer in e n t e r t a i n i n g servicemen throughout the world. But basically, she is still the "girl next door" whose life is closely entwined with that of her husband and four children. Anita married former Miami broadcasting personality Bob Green in I960. He is not her manager.
